I have an AIX system running AIX 4.1.5. To this system we have mounted
(via NFS) a remote file system residing on a Linux system. From the AIX
system we can see the files, we can also read/write/create them.
When I run a Microfocus Cobol program (on the AIX system) that wants to
use a file on the mounted Linux file system, the program hangs during
the OPEN of the file. On the AIX console a message like "rpc.statd
cannot talk to remote statd daemon" is issued in a loop.
What do I have to do to start "statd" and "lockd" on the Linux system?
Or is there a way to manage this from the AIX system?
The same program works ok using two AIX systems.
When I terminate statd to avoid the error messages and the blocking, the
OPEN in the program fails with "Too many locks".
